Top 10 Food-Based Beauty Gifts: If You Get Desperate, You Can Eat Your Make-Up
This company took the food-as-beauty-product concept and went absolutely bonkers with it. Their 3-in-1 shampoo/bubble bath/bath gel line comes in such holiday scents as old-fashioned eggnog, peppermint bark, Christmas cookie, cinnamon buns and hot-buttered rum. Each bottle has a complete recipe for the food version of its flavor printed on the front. They also offer scrubs like the Gingerbread Man and lotions like Sweet Creamy Frosting, all cleverly packaged as The Cookbook or The Recipe Box or The Bake Shoppe. On their website, the company's founder, Cristina Carlino, says, "If you think that you like hot cinnamon buns or hot coca or pear cobbler or pink frosted layer cake to eat, you haven't lived until you've showered with these items. It's addictive."
But what if you ate them IN the bathtub while using the corresponding flavored bubble bath WHILE watching "Cake Boss"? The mind boggles.
